tasty fried green pepper rings

Honestly, I hardly ever fry things, but every now and then, especially summer time, I like my fried green tomatoes or in this case, fried green pepper rings. I was making eggplant parmesan a couple of nights ago, had some egg left and decided to fry up some green pepper rings.

I worked at my brother-in-law and sister's cafe while in my teens, fried green pepper rings were on the menu. I LOVED them. Never had I made them, but I may now and again, since these turned out so tasty and delicious. And, they were super easy, always a plus factor.

I just cut the pepper in rings, dipped them in flour seasoned with salt and pepper, then in egg and back into the flour and fried them in a little bit of oil. I am going to add some other herbs next time, give them a little zest.

They were so good!!! Thought about making a dip, but I don't have to have a dip to enjoy them. They would be good just dipped in ranch dressing.

On another note, I saw a "for sale" sign in this cute little mini last Sunday at the Home Depot parking lot. I was sure I would win the power ball that night, with the "one" ticket I had purchased to allow me to buy my dream car. The Universe did not get the message quick enough. Next time. :)

Yum...your fried peppers look delicious! I have never heard of preparing peppers this way, but it is a great idea.
Very cute mini cooper. Red & black were my high school colors : )

Willow, you really must try these, they are worth...well all the things we'd rather not think about.:) Truly delicious.
And I'm just waiting on the Universe to hear my heart's desire on this little mini. :) Let me know if you try the green pepper rings. xoxo

LadyCat, I don't know what made me remember these the other night. I think these were a little lighter batter than what I remember from my teens, making them even better, in my opinion. :) Ha, red & black were my high school colors, also. go figure. xoxo
